Tower Bridge Exhibition

Rarely has a bridge come to define a city as clearly as Tower Bridge. Its bascule design (which is French for see-saw) has seen it become an icon not only for London but for Britain as a whole. It was designed by Horace Jones and opened in 1894 to help ease growing congestion in the city, with a pedestrian walkway high above that was intended to be used when the bridge was drawn.

The Tower of London Exhibition opened in 1982 to take visitors through the fascinating history of the bridge. You enjoy the glass floor that gives you eye-popping views of the river below, take in the panoramic views of London from the walkways or explore the Victorian Engine Rooms that used to power the bridge lifts.
